    Retired firefighter killed during funeral procession
    SEATTLE (AP) - A retired Seattle firefighter died several hours
    after he was hit by a car while volunteering in a funeral
    The King County medical examiner identified the man as Richard
    Friedt, 57. He died sometime during the night at Harborview Medical
    Center, a nursing supervisor said Sunday.
    Cause of death was not available Sunday.
    Friedt was on a motorcycle Saturday escorting a private funeral
    procession when a Cadillac in the procession pulled out, hit Friedt
    and pushed him into oncoming traffic.
    "The initial impact between the vehicle and the motorcycle
    forced the motorcycle into oncoming traffic, where it clipped a
    second vehicle," Seattle Police spokeswoman Deanna Nollette told
    KOMO Television.
    Officials did not know why the car changed lanes.
    Friedt worked for the Seattle Fire Department more 25 years
    before retiring several years ago.
    He is survived by his wife, six children and three
